There Is More To Fire Damage Than Just Smoke And Soot
It can be shocking to witness the amount of damage that the fire department has to cause to your property in order to successfully put out a fire.
When a fire burns inside of a structure, it moves upward and then outward. In order to stop that damaging, upward motion, the fire department will often break windows and cut holes in the roof. They may also cut holes in the walls to be more efficient and actually cause less damage by the fire.
It may seem excessive, but by cutting these holes in the property the firefighters can be completely sure that there is no lingering fire inside of the walls or any other part of the property.
The water damage left behind by the fire hoses can end up being more destructive than the fire itself. Your property will be left flooded with water, not to mention the damage to your personal items inside of the home or business.
When you hire a company to restore your property after a fire, you want to make sure that they are trained to repair both the fire and water damage. 911 Restoration Durham County can offer you these comprehensive services, so call us as soon as the fire department has left your property.
Know What To Do Once The Fire Has Been Extinguished
In Durham it is the property’s owner responsibility to cover any of the holes or exposed entryways in order to protect the property from weather damage, theft, and rodents and wildlife.
If you need to leave the property until the repairs are made, then you should pack up any remaining valuables and possessions that you wish to save. Some fires may require an investigation to determine how it was started. If this is the case, then a police officer will accompany you and take inventory on the items you remove from the scene.
It can be costly to pay for temporary housing while you wait for your home to be repaired. Sometimes insurance providers will provide coverage for this, but if not, then you may want to reach out to The Red Cross for immediate assistance.
